Tennessee Venue To Host ‘Trans Day Of Vengeance’ Event Days After Covenant Shooting Anniversary

 A Tennessee music venue is hosting a “Trans Day of Vengeance” concert just days after the one-year anniversary of the deadly shooting at The Covenant School, in which a transgender-identifying woman killed three children and three adults, apparently out of ideological fury.

A flyer promoted by several bands says that the Graveyard Gallery in Murfreesboro is hosting the concert on March 31, and using it to raise money for a group that provides gender reassignment surgery. The shooting occurred on March 27, 2023, at the Christian school in Nashville, less than an hour away.

The party comes with Nashville schools in high alert because of the potential for violence on the anniversary of the shooting. The shooting last year came as radical transgender activists rallied for a “Trans Day of Vengeance” on the same day that year, with the Trans Radical Activist Network (TRAN) saying, “The time is now, enough is enough.”

President Joe Biden in 2021 recognized March 31 as the “Transgender Day of Visibility,” which trans activists changed to “vengeance.” Whether that Day of Vengeance may have spurred the timing of the child-killer’s act is unknown because authorities have refused to release her manifesto.

The flyer for this year’s event says “all proceeds will be donated to Point of Pride” and that the bands include Dumpster Pussy, Dru The Drifter + The Back Alley Hookers, Boy Clothes, Spinning Lodge, and the Oitakus. It says the event is presented by Boro Fondo, a “music, art, and bike fest” that is advertising the show and asking attendees to “bring new or used chest binders to donate to Point of Pride.”

“Point of Pride mails gender affirming garments to trans and gender-diverse people who cannot afford or otherwise access them,” a poster on Boro Fondo’s Instagram page says. “Shipping is free. Point of Pride provides funding towards surgery, hormone replacement therapy, and permanent hair removal services.” 

Boro Fondo and Graveyard Gallery did not return requests for comment. Nor did Spinning Lodge or the Oitakus.

TRAN’s website for last year’s event included violent rhetoric, quoting trans activist Sylvia Rivera who said, “I remember when someone threw a Molotov cocktail, I thought, ‘My god, the revolution is here.'”

The 2023 event in Washington, D.C. was cancelled at the last minute — not out of respect for the slain children, but because “the safety of our trans community is first priority” and there was a “flood of raw hatred directed towards the trans community after the Tennessee shooting.”

Transgender activists aim to get “vengeance” for what they imagine is a “genocide” against them. However, that genocide does not exist, according to Department of Justice statistics.

Transgenders were the victims of 271 hate crimes in 2021, most of them minor, with the exception of two murders and two rapes. Seventy were “intimidation,” and 37 were vandalism. Half of the offenders were black.

Based on the FBI data, a black person’s chance of being the victim of a hate crime in a given year is 98 in a million, a Jewish person stands a 109 in a million chance. The likelihood of a transgender person is less than half of that, a rate similar to the one for Muslims.Members of the Selected First Motorcycle Club join others in prayer at a makeshift memorial for victims of a shooting at the Covenant School campus, in Nashville, Tennessee, March 28, 2023. - A heavily armed former student killed three young children and three staff in what appeared to be a carefully planned attack at a private elementary school in Nashville on March 27, 2023, before being shot dead by police. Chief of Police John Drake named the suspect as Audrey Hale, 28, who the officer later said identified as transgender.

The national TRAN group, which is not known to be affiliated with the Murfreesboro concert, was led by an individual who “came out as a lesbian at age 29 and as a transgender man at age 50,” as well as another who said  “What motivated me to start TRAN was the fact I was bullied to the point where I attempted to end my own life. The person that bullied me was a fellow member of the LGBTIA+.”

The Virginia chapter was led by Bo Belotti, who once worked for Elizabeth Guzman, a Democrat Virginia state lawmaker.
